CHINA SUP­PORTS UN PROBE

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Chi­nese For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi said on Mon­day that China sup­ports the UN Sec­re­tariat in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of the re­ported use of chem­i­cal weapons in Syria. Wang said China takes a very se­ri­ous view of the al­leged use of chem­i­cal weapons in Syria.

“China’s po­si­tion is that no mat­ter who uses chem­i­cal weapons, we firmly op­pose such an ac­tion,” he said.

He said China sup­ports the UN Sec­re­tariat in con­duct­ing an in­de­pen­dent, ob­jec­tive, fair and pro­fes­sional in­ves­ti­ga­tion in ac­cor­dance with rel­e­vant UN res­o­lu­tions to find out the truth as soon as pos­si­ble.

Po­lit­i­cal res­o­lu­tion is the only way out of the Syr­ian is­sue, he said, adding that the top pri­or­ity is to con­vene a sec­ond Geneva con­fer­ence on the Syr­ian is­sue at an early date.
